According to the WHO, health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
In this respect, I would like to remind you that the practitioner, especially the neurologist, must be holistic in his therapeutic approach in order to ensure a global care of the patient.
This being said, the epileptic patient deserves to be listened to in all aspects of his life (profession, leisure, sexuality, reproduction... etc.), especially those related to his beliefs and cultures, whose infringement is certainly a source of frustrations, fears and seizure-generating emotions, thus jeopardizing the correct management of his illness. The cult is therefore an essential part of these important aspects for the epileptic patient in general and the Muslim in particular.
